Action Alert: Make Your Phone Call Before the Vote

Dear Friends,

Now is the time to call your Congressional representative again. The Armenian Genocide Resolution (HR106) is expected to come to a vote in the full House of Representatives very soon, without much warning. All representatives listed below are supporters of the resolution, but with the increasing opposition from the U.S. administration, we need to encourage them to hold firm in their support when the final vote comes.

You can find out who your representative is, by going to http://www.house.gov/ and putting your zip code in the upper left-hand corner window labeled, "Find Your Representative."

Below is a list of representatives from the Bay Area and their phone numbers.

Your call can be quite brief:

- Introduce yourself with your name, and tell the staff person that you're a constituent.

- Say you're calling about the Armenian Genocide Resolution, HR106.

- Thank the representative for his/her co-sponsorship of the resolution

- Urge the representative to continue his/her support with a "yes" vote in the full House

- Ask the representative to encourage his/her colleagues to vote "yes."

If you are a Nancy Pelosi constituent, tell her staff that you appreciate her leadership on this resolution, and that you'd like her to continue doing everything in her power to make the resolution pass.
